Designed to meet the current desire for contemporary cool and neutral hues in light to mid-tones, the Rubens collection offers the opportunity to take a single design over different sub-floor conditions and endless potential to create sophisticated bespoke floors with a combination of designs and laying patterns.
From the cool hues of Frosted Marble and Smoked Concrete to the neutral tones of Lime Washed Oak and the reclaimed rustic charm of Washed Character Oak, this stunning new collection is ideal for both co-living projects, such as build to rent, house build, student accommodation or retirement living, and light commercial spaces, such as hospitality, boutique hotels and offices, and offers endless possibilities to create highly individualized designs. For minimal disruption, developers can choose the rigid core version of the designs.
We welcome six new wood and two new stone designs, including options available in a choice of gluedown and rigid core formats. In addition, the collection introduces a new 1219mm x 178mm plank size to ten popular existing gluedown designs.
Designers looking for a distinctive and impactful floor will appreciate the introduction of an innovative chevron design in convenient larger sized (1219mm x 229mm). Presented as a chevron patterned gluedown plank in a choice of two colourways; Grey Washed Oak and Rose Washed Oak, this is the perfect choice for projects where installation time is key.
Steve Curry, general manager of Designflooring, said: “This new collection has been a journey of discovery. Designed to not only meet but exceed aesthetic and technical expectations, we are proud to present this adaptable range of wood and stone designs in our widest choice of formats, available at an accessible price point. Our popular Rose Washed Oak design, for example, is now available in five format and plank size options including our new chevron effect.
“Our latest designs have been influenced by our recent experiences and aim to support wellbeing and a sense of belonging with a natural look that connect our interiors to the outside environment. While intended to offer a stylish palette of pale greys and taupes that will act as a subtle background to the latest interior trends and bold colour choices, this collection doesn’t skimp on character or authentic details.”
Like all our designs, the new collection has been handcrafted for an authentic look of natural materials and produced with cutting-edge technology, resulting in a selection of beautiful yet practical floors that will meet any project’s aesthetic and technical requirements.
